BeneFit Cosmetics

BeneFit Cosmetics was founded in San Francisco in 1976 by twin sisters Jane and Jean Ford. Starting out as a small beauty boutique called "The Face Place" in the Mission District, they developed their first product called "Rose Tint" (now famously known as "benetint"). After a move to downtown San Francisco in the 80's, they went on to develop and debut "lip plump". After changing the name to Benefit Cosmetics in 1990, the first Benefit counter at Henri Bendel in New York City a year later, eventually opening counters in London and worldwide. Aquired by LVMH in 1999, the best-selling products include "They're Real!" mascara, "Gimme Brow" brow gel and the "Porefessional", a pore-minimizing balm. (wikipedia.com)

I love this product for my red nose. I have red on the sides and tip of my nose and pinkish acne scars. I melt the product between my fingers and dab. it doesn't accentuate pores. I have a runny nose all the time but this has lasting power and doesn't start to break up. the con...i don't think the pay off is worth the price. I have other concealer that are cheaper.


Lipstick -BeneFit Cosmetics -They're Real Double the Lip Lipstick

I got this free with a magazine ages ago, rediscovered it in a drawer and just need to share how perplexed I am by it. The idea is sound - a lipstick and liner combo you can swipe on in one - and it does give nice definition on the first few uses. However, as it wears down you need to do gymnastics for the same effect, and as a lipstick it’s really best described as ‘meh’. The texture doesn’t compare to other BeneFit lipsticks I’ve tried, it’s quite drying and doesn’t last well, to add further insult the fade is patchy. The colour I have is ‘Nude Scandal’, which is very pink for a nude. I can’t imagine it flattering many people - it’s okay on me (very light neutral skintone, freckles, dark blue/green eyes) and I can see it working on some medium dark skin tones with lighter eyes, but I’d say it would be a bit niche. The packaging is cute and mimics the They’re Real mascara, i imagine it would stand up well to being chucked in handbags and the lid is nice and secure, but what’s inside doesn’t live up to BeneFit price points. It feels like a prototype - if they could reformulate the actual lipstick and maybe reshape the bullet I’d potentially be interested, in a better colour, but as is, avoid!


Mascara -BeneFit Cosmetics -BADgal BANG! Volumizing Mascara

Bought this on a whim as I needed a new mascara, and I hate it. The formula is very wet and however hard I try to be careful, it gets in my upper waterline so I see a black line when looking straight ahead. The QVC product review said it has a special tight plug so the brush isn't overloaded with product, but mine just looks like I've dipped it in an ink pot and there is no resistance when I pull the brush out of the tube. It is very fiddly and time consuming to apply, as it is so wet it easily goes were you don't want It. So not a quick swipe no-nonsense and out the door mascara, as advertised. Also, even with an oil makeup remover, it is very hard to remove and lots of rubbing and pulling at the clumps is required to remove it fully.
On the plus side, the tube looks nice and the wand is easy to hold. The small brush works well on my short stumpy lashes, and it is very deep black.

Really great mascara! Very black and doesn’t smudge on me (basically the only mascara I’ve tried that doesn’t). The price is more than I’d like to pay for mascara but the travel sized is great and definitely lasts the three months.
